Maximizing Recoveries For Those Injured By Drunk Drivers
Alcohol is a contributing factor in a staggering number of car accidents in Montana and nationwide. Victims of accidents involving drunk drivers may pursue compensation for their injuries by contacting a personal injury lawyer and filing a claim against the at-fault driver. Ramler Law Office, P.C., has a lengthy record of maximizing personal injury claims against negligent drivers.
Proving Liability After A Montana DUI Accident
A driver does not have to be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) to be held accountable for an injury accident. Victims of drunk drivers only need to prove the other driver’s negligence contributed to the crash. A dedicated car accident attorney can review the police report and the results of any alcohol concentration tests to show the driver had alcohol in his or her system at the time of the crash.
If liability has been determined, injured victims may file a personal injury claim against an at-fault motorist to receive compensation for the damages they have suffered. A successful civil lawsuit could result in financial compensation for losses including:
- Hospital bills
- Past and future suffering
- Disability coverage
- Lost wages
- Lost future wages
- Emotional distress
- Cost of physical therapy
- Cost of medical devices and medication
Protecting The Rights Of Injured Victims
Receiving fair compensation following an injury accident is not always easy. Even when it is clear a drunk driver caused the crash, it is common for claims to be denied.
